The City of Sacramento provides curbside collection of garbage, organic waste, and recycling for residential properties which include single family homes, mixed use properties, duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, and some larger multifamily dwellings. Commercial services are not provided by the City.

Garbage and organic waste is collected weekly and recycling is collected every-other-week on either an A week or B week schedule.

Household Junk Pickup is provided to residential properties only. Street sweeping is provided to both residential and commercial properties on public streets.

General Collection Guidelines

  • Place containers out by 6:00 a.m.
  • Lids must be closed
  • Leave 3 feet between containers and any other obstacles
  • Downtown/Midtown: Whenever possible, residents in restricted parking zones should place containers on the curb and not in the street or gutter
  • Keep containers out of bike lanes whenever possible
  • Containers should be out for service no earlier than twelve hours before your collection day, and should be returned to the storage area on your property within twelve hours of collection.
  • Storage locations must be within, adjacent to or behind a structure, building, fence, landscaping or other barrier that substantially screens the containers from the street or public right-of-way
